Change

I've been craving change. Which is strange coming from the girl who orders the same thing every where she goes and loves a set routine. I think I just feel safe in the expected. But as I grow and stretch, God is teaching me to embrace change more. Change can be really good for you. And it is definitely needed for growth.
So. I'm embracing it.

For the past couple of months I have thought a lot about how I want to use my blog and the different ways to stretch it's tent poles a little more. There are a few things coming...probably not until after the holidays.  But for now, as you can see, we've already begun to change the look of it. I wanted clean and simple. My sweet friend from Katy Girl Designs did an amazing job don't you think?

She also worked with me to create a new logo for my shop.

 If you've checked out my shop lately you may have already seen the change, but there is still more to come. Including a ton of new pieces to be added! I am hoping/planning to get the shop update done this week----hopefully by Thursday!

If you follow me on instagram {if you don't yet and want to, you can click that cute little camera on the right!} then you have seen a lot of peaks of the custom work I've been doing {and loving} and also other new pieces. Soon they will all be listed in the shop along with the option for custom pieces.


Oh and speaking of change? I went from being a blondie/brownie to a reddish/auburn!
I was a little freaked out by it at first and mourned the loss of my blonde....aka my comfort zone.
But in the spirit of embracing change, I decided to give it a chance.


And now? I think I kinda love it. It's fun for fall, don't you think? 
Change is good. I'm learning that and I am excited for it.

What about you...have you made any changes in your life that you are excited about? I'd love to hear about them. Oh and also, I love to interact with y'all, so know that if you leave me a comment I almost always reply to it in the comments, so be sure to check back in them.

Love you All.
Excited for what is to come and happy to have y'all along with me.

  8. i definitely crave change. blame it on growing up in the military and moving every three years, i just can't seem to settle now post life outside of the military. so i have to find change in other areas to help me feel refreshed, new and more vibrant. love the new look!
